Sunday: Mallorca Island; Arrival Port de Soller, Embarkation at 6 PM.
Individual arrival and group transfer from airport to the port of Soller. Your proud ship is ready for boarding at 6 pm. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your luggage on board after 2 pm and spend the afternoon as you wish. Take a walk along the bay of Port de Soller or let the ancient tram swing you through orange groves to the town centre. Here, you can watch the lively scene while drinking a cup of coffee in the Placa de Constitucio before the first communal meal lures you back on board. During a welcome drink on deck, you receive a brief introduction to life on board and get to know the crew. Overnight stay in the harbor of Soller.
Monday: Mallorca Island; Soller – Valdemossa – Port d’es Canonge – Port d'Andratx
The first stretch of cycling takes us from Soller along a curving coastal road to Valdemossa, a small town at an elevation of 400 m with its famous Carthusian monastery. The countless views across the sea make the effort invested well worthwhile. The route is lined with highlights, such as the picturesque artist’s village of Deya and the former Son Marroig Estate. After an extensive lunch break in Valdemossa we continue on the bikes rapidly descending to the sea where the ship awaits us. The command is called: Cast off! We cruise along the impressive cliff coast of the Tramuntana Mountains on our way to Port Andratx. Noble yachts and original fishing boats lying closely side by side lend a very special charm to this harbour.
Tuesday: Mallorca Island: Port d'Andratx – Sant Elm - Port d`Andratx
Todays cycling round trip leads us along the coastline till we reach the holiday resort Peguera. We continue cycling on calm country roads across a 240 m-high pass until Andratx, a community that managed to preserve its original charm. We are heading to the likeable and quiet resort of Sant Elm, where we spend the afternoon as we like. Go for a swim at the beautiful local beach or join a walk to the old watchtower. In the late afternoon we finish off our bike tour with a small climb and arrive back in Port d`Andratx.
Wednesday: Mallorca Island – Ibiza Island, Sailing day
You lift anchor early in the morning and head towards Ibiza. After an extensive breakfast, the helmsman gives you an introduction to the art of sailing and explains the most important functions of the rigging. Now sailing enthusiasts can take an active part in the sailing of the ship. For those who would rather watch, it’s enough to enjoy the fresh sea breeze or to settle down with a book they have always wanted to read. After arriving Ibiza, there is time for a refreshing swim in the sea or a walk along the untouched, rugged north coast of the island. Framed by steep rocks you stay on your proud ship anchoring overnight in the bay of Benirras.
Thursday: Ibiza Island; Benirras – Es Canar - Formentera Island
Today’s cycle tour takes you at first along a wooded mountainous stretch at an elevation of 300 m to the beautiful beach of Sant Vincente, where you take a coffee break. You continue first along the coastline and later on through the agricultural centre of the island. We stop for lunch in a little village called Sant Carlos coming up with a large amount of Ibizan specialities. Afterwards we cycle a few more miles to your ship which takes you to the next island: Formentera. It is the smallest inhabited island of the Balearic Islands and often quite justly called the Caribbean of the Mediterranean. You also should not miss ending the day with a relaxing cocktail at the beach bar in the bay of Es Calo to let the day fade away.
Friday: Formentera Island; Es Calo – La Savina – Ibiza: Cala d´Hort
In the morning, you make a side trip by bicycle to the lighthouse La Mola, which Jules Verne mentions in one of his novels as „the lighthouse at the end of the world.“ The cliffs behind the lighthouse fall off steeply for 140 m, and it is said that in good weather conditions one can see all the way to Africa. You continue cycling to the dreamily island capital Sant Francesc passing cubic houses and wheat fields already recaptured by wild flowers. You meet your ship at the northernmost point of the island to sail to your overnight stay at the marvellous bay of Cala d’Hort on Ibiza. Take the chance to go ashore for a swim or simply to enjoy the view at the myth-enshrouded rocky island of Es Vedra.
Saturday: Cala d Hort - Es Jondal - Ibiza City
The last cycle trip of the tour starts with a short but severe uphill climb out of the bay of Cala d’Hort till you reach the cliff coast. A breathtaking view onto the bay and at the rocky island as well as onto the ship passing by will make you dream. Afterwards you cycle tour leads you into the interior of the Island. Fennel-lined streets take you around the highest point of the Island. You will cross the foothills of Sa Talaias on your ride towards the sea passing vineyards and white-washed fincas. After lunch and a stop for swimming, you sail to Ibiza Town, where you go on a sight-seeing tour of the UNESCO-protected Old Town. Among the walls of the mighty fortification system, the grand past of the island metropolis becomes alive. The last evening is traditionally spent in a cosy get-together of guests, crew and tour guides. You spend the night in the harbour of Ibiza Town.
Sunday: Ibiza Disembarkation at 9.00 AM
After breakfast, check-out until 9.00 am and individual journey home.
